Back to the usual business and I am delighted to post today some pics from the backstage of Marchesa’s Bridal spring 2016 show. These dresses are simply breathtaking and the accessories perfectly complement them.
I always wondered why brides choose the standardized taffeta or satin gowns they find in shops instead of a beautiful unique dress, made for her or at least made in a small series… I am not talking about those people with budgetary constraints, because in that case I could make an effort and understand a standard wedding organization as a part of a fixed price pack… Although I do not understand why make a wedding when you cannot afford it, but that is another talk and I hope I will have the time and right mood to write about that too. Now I am talking about people who spend at least 800-1000€ for a wedding dress and it looks exactly like the ones I saw a few days ago in a shop in Bucharest for less than half the price… Why not go to a fashion designer that could make a dress especially for you or even a talented seamstress that can work around your design and make you feel like the dress is really made for you… Or if you go to a wedding dress shop, why not choose the unique one, the one that reflects your personality? And don’t tell that those dresses reflect the personality of the brides because I find it really hard to believe that all brides choosing the strapless satin gown with a big bow on the back and corset top are the same person.
I know that many of these choices are a result of mimicry, society pressure on those who dare to be different and the fact that most people organize their weddings more for their relatives or friends than for themselves, but wouldn’t it be nice to go to the church on a Saturday and see all the brides looking different, with dresses and hairstyles that make them look and feel wonderful? Just sayin’…
